A NEW dog pool has been hailed as a success as it is loved by owners and their furry friends alike.

Canine Dip and Dive hosts fun swimming sessions for dogs in a large outdoor pool at Gardeners Farm, near Maldon.

After opening earlier this month, it runs pool parties, dock diving, puppy paddles, senior and solo swims.

Owners can even jump in too.

"We feel so lucky to have had this opportunity and we're looking forward to the summer."

Andrew Brownlie, who started Canine Dip and Dive in Suffolk, said: "The response to the pool opening has been tremendous. Each weekend is fully booked and good booking levels during the week too.

"They have had a lot of five star reviews and the feedback from visitors has been amazing."

Sessions range from £15 to £35 and people can book their dog in online at bit.ly/3w912An.

Canine Dip and Dive notes its pools are not hydrotheraphy pools, they are made for dogs to have fun and exercise.
